Swift Creek Bluffs Nature Preserve

Swift Creek Bluffs, is a 23-acre nature preserve in Wake County owned and managed by Triangle Land Conservancy. Just five miles from downtown Cary, this natural area is a remarkable remnant of historical Piedmont forests. Although this forest has been selectively logged at least once in the past 75-100 years, the age and size of its trees and its diverse plant life make it reminiscent of the hardwood forests that dominated the Piedmont prior to European settlement.

Location. 7800 Holly Springs Road, Raleigh, NC 27606
